Hi Eka

How old is your child? Are you only swallowing the cotton or the stalk? Cotton can not be digested by the body, therefore in general cotton will be released again together with feces. As long as your child is not fussy, does not look in pain, his stomach is not hard, and not constipated, then you do not need to worry and just wait until the cotton comes out with feces.

But if the cottonbud stalks are also swallowed, or your child has abdominal pain, his stomach feels hard, he cannot defecate, can't fart, nausea, vomit, or experience shortness of breath, I suggest that your child be taken to the nearest emergency room so that more examinations can be done further to ensure conditions and so that your child can get more optimal treatment, yes.

Henceforth you should store items that are easily swallowed in a place that cannot be reached by your child. Also try to always supervise your child when playing yes.

Hope it helps you,

Thank you
